Bavaria is a very special spot. There are more castles than in Disneyland, more cows on pastures than in Wisconsin and the food is almost as delicious as in France. But watch it. This is what can happen to you down there.
Berlin, October 23rd, 2021 (The Berlin Spectator) — So, you want to see the most beautiful spots in Germany? Go to Bavaria. You intend to find some nice mountains? Bavaria is your place. If you feel a strong desire for beer, go there. But do not say we did not tell you to be careful. These are ‘The Top 10 Things than Can Happen to You in Bavaria if You Are Not Careful’.
10. New Admirers
If you don’t watch it, you will have new adorers in no time. Down there, in Bavaria, they come in pairs.
9. Missing City
They say they have a great capital and they put up a million signs with its name, but you won’t find it anywhere.
8. Tourist Stampedes
One species is spreading in an uncontrolled way, namely the tourist. Just make sure you don’t end up under their hooves.
7. Nice Décor
Next door, in Austria’s Grossgmain (original spelling: Großgmain), they want to make you believe the scenery you see, when you stare out your hotel window, is real.
6. Ticks Galore
And then they make you interact with ticks in the middle of nowhere.
5. Locked Up
In Nuremberg, The Berlin Spectator’s reporter wanted to shoot some pictures in the rain. Before he could hit the damned release button, he was put behind bars.
4. Photo Ops
Those Bavarians will make you use several film rolls per day at the exaggerated number of beautiful spots they have.
3. Fairytale Castles
As if you had not walked more than enough already, they convince you to climb yet another hill. This is what they will show you up there.
2. Secret Destination
They will lure you into taking a boat trip, but nobody ever tells you where in the hell you are going.
1. Calorie Bombs
Forget your bikini body. Once you sit at the table at what the Bavarians call ‘Gasthof’, they will fatten you until you look like the animal you just consumed a slice of.
